This ceramic sculpture falls under my series called Open Sculptures. These investigate ways of seeing inside and out space using colour and line. The intention is to draw and scatter the eye to investigate different parts of the form simultaneously.
The inspiration behind this work stems from my fascination with stone circles in the UK such as Stonehenge. They are places full of mystery, it invites me to ask questions and imagine. The sculpture suggests an architectural presence and can also relate to clouds.
Information about this artwork
This ceramic stand alone sculpture was made by throwing singular geometric cylinders on the potters wheel that I then cut up and joined together using hand-building techniques.
It is made from Stoneware and a blue and white slip has been applied to the outside and a yellow on the inside. A clear glaze has also been applied to the inside outside of the form.
This piece was bisque fired first to1000c then multiple fired to control the application of colour and finally glaze fired to 1260c.
Dimensions: H12 W21 D14cm
